Business Traveler Must-Have Travel Gadgets

Business travel is exciting fun and, some of the time, productive. However, it can also be quite stressful for the same reasons that it is interesting. You are traveling to a new destination which is most likely nothing like your office set up back home. And the expectations are higher as you are the brand representative.

Additional stress point is of course the travel itself. The time it takes to travel to the location could have been spent doing something productive. Standing in line in the checkpoint, waiting for the flight and so on are all time wasted. However, that is when having the right travel gadgets along could help you be more productive or just help you chilax.


Kindle

- it is easy to pack a bunch of books that you would like to catch up on in this one small device
- or you can load up PDF documents to review while en route.
- easy to read and use on flight
- long lasting battery charge



IPad
- iPad is very versatile.
- you can do more book reading or online reading, view movies and shows, and serve the web.
- with business apps for iPad, you can also complete a few of the productive tasks
- such as build out presentations


Fujitsu SCANSNAP S1100
Scanner

- can scan in credit card receipts, and other receipts, business cards, standard size paper documents, and more
- easily manage the documents with the app that comes with most scanners

Wireless Mouse

- Until recently I didn't even think about this little computer gadget as I was dragging it around with my laptop. A wireless mouse is an essential gadget for anyone traveling with a computer. Track pads while convenient, since they are built-in, are quite uncomfortable to use, can cause unintended edits, and are not ergonomic. I have the Logitech Wireless Mouse M310and it has been awesome. It is very easy to set up. All you do is plug a tiny wireless connector into a USB port. The mouse is ergonomically design so it is great to use. They also thought of it while in transport. The wireless connector can be stored inside the mouse next to the battery, so you always have both in the same place. It has an on/off switch on the bottom so you do not waste battery life while it moves around in your bag.

Micro projector
- Pictures speak louder than words
- instead of relying on the folks at your destination to have all the equipment, you can be ready with your own that you actually know how to use
- no need to huddle over the small screen of a laptop with clients not able to see or be a little too close for comfort
- integrates with smartphones through apps
- when done with presentation, watch movies in hotel room on the big screen

Travel Bags
- There are many pain points associated with travel especially business travel. One of these is travel bags.
While vacationers tend to gravitate to bags that are light and roomy, for business you want bags that are sturdy, great ride-along, and easy to pack and transport. They also need to protect your valuables such as iPad and laptop while en route. And offer a multitude of compartments and pockets to organize everything you need to conduct business on the go.

Smartphone
- Per a recent survey, technology is a top tool for business travelers to balance personal and professional lives and achieving overall work-life productivity. Gadgets that they find most helpful are smartphones, as they help them keep in touch with their family as well as social and professional networks.

It is also important to keep things clean and presentable during a business trip:
